As far as I know all the SC1 s have a single cam engine the sc2 is a twin cam engine so unless somebody did an engine overhaul and put a twin cam in your car that's the only reason I would see why you would have a different engine in there you could check you know your engine numbers matching your body of your vehicle it's kind of an involved search have never done it before but you can compare manufacturing numbers on the engine and on the frame of the car to see if the engine came with the car that's all I can recommend.
